Do you take time to journal?

I took a few days off from blogging and tried to disconnect with the electronic world, while connecting with the real world. Took some nice walks along the trails with Dylan, spent an afternoon at Irvine Regional Park, and lots of time just sitting on the couch at night reading magazines. It was nice to have a little breather and clear my head.
Some time to reflect on the past year. No, not as in New Years reflecting, but as in birthday reflecting. Yep, another year has come and gone and I'm not getting any younger.

A clear head means it is time to start documenting what I am going through. When I was a teenager I had a diary that I wrote in every night. I documented all my deep, dark secrets.

Not too long ago I came across one of my old diaries. I laughed, I cried, and I even felt a little heartache for the girl who suffered from her first broken heart.

Now that I have a blank slate, I thought it was the perfect time to start writing again. Not the things a teenage girl writes, but what I feel is important in my life now. The things I want to do. Places I want to go. The legacy I want to leave.

Seeing that I'm passionate about wildlife and conservation, I think my new San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy journal is the perfect place to start. Who knows, my thoughts and ideas could spark awareness and make a difference in the world.

Do you keep a journal? What do you write about?
